    since there has not yet been an answer I will do my best to help. There is no place to attach a lanyard. was that helpful?

    the only thing I can suggest if your hellbent on having one is to purchase a case that has one incorporated. If you do find something cool come on back to this thread and share it as I am sure there is someone else that would love to have a solution to this dilema.

    I would have to concur that there's no (known) lanyard accessory for the iPhone.
    I've seen people attach lanyards to their phones but they were just "regular-sized" cell phones; that'd kill my neck to have the iphone strapped around it all day, but YMMV.

    Indeed there is. One of the guys here, I think it's Rene, has it.

    There are a ton on Ebay.

    I would avoid the above ^^^ just for the simple fact you are begging to crack the plastic around the dock connector. That's just me though.

    Hmm... yeah, that seems like a lot of stress on the dock connector. No way would I get it. What if you trip and it gets caught on something?... It'll rip right out. No thanks.

    You could buy a case and mod it yourself to add a lanyard

    (*sigh* I tried to post/link to a picture of my diy solution but apparently I'm too new a member to really help you, sorry! lol)


    I have a Switcheasy case...I took a small drill to it and made 2 holes to put a handstrap thru. It's not perfect - I will prolly get another one of the same case down the road and plan out the holes better, but it really works and makes me feel a bit less like I'm going to drop the phone...

    Wow those laynard contraptions just scream "Bad Idea!". Probably destroy the the dock connector within a week.

    I ended up making my own because I couldn't find any out there that I liked.

    What I did it just get a regular hard shell case and attach the lanyard between the front-side piece and the volume rocker buttons. It worked fine.

    i use a Danglet. It doesnt add any bulk or weight and I actually use a NFL lanyard strap that i got as a gift with it. Comes with straps, though.

    there is a youtube video of a ipod on a danglet swinging a 40 pound bucket of water off of it.

    i can't post a link, so

    lost my 3GS this past weekend in colorado; it fell out of my pocket at some point; a lanyard would have saved me plenty...can't believe there is not a case that can be attached to a lanyard, will keep looking!

    I've searched for a lanyard case too. Even began another thread like this a long time ago. I was surprised to see a non-techy friend show up with a good solution. She used one of the lanyards that have a thread type end made for a USB drive. Take any hard or silicone case and run the thread through the camera lens hole or punch a new hole. Simple and works. This will be my ski season solution in another 32 weeks or so.

    Here are a couple cases that come with a lanyard:

    Bone Collection iPhone 4 Bubble Case w/Strap, White PH10051-W - Cyberguys.com

    ^^Not the most attractive...

    Buy.com - Bone Collection iPhone 4 Cube Case w/Strap, Black

    ^^Doesn't look very sturdy.

    TPU CASE COVER+STRAP+LANYARD HOLDER SCREW FOR IPHONE 4 For Sale

    ^^This one is kinda cool and you could definitely mod this yourself.

    If you look on the bottom of the back of the ipod/iphone, you'll see a little silver circle-y thing. Press down on it and it should pop out. I believe that's where you put the lanyard on c:

    Being that this thread is from 2009 and that there is no place to connect a lanyard on the iPhone, and who in their right mind would want to connect a lanyard to the charging port? can we not close this thread?
